What are Metrics and what Metrics does Gamera Track

Gamera's metrics are quantitative measurements used to assess the performance, efficiency, and effectiveness of a website. They provide valuable insights into various aspects of user behavior, site functionality, and overall user experience. By analyzing these metrics, website owners and digital marketers can make data-driven decisions to improve site performance, enhance user engagement, and achieve specific business goals.

Key Aspects of Gamera's Metrics:

  1. Traffic Metrics: Measure the volume and sources of website traffic (e.g., visits, users, pageviews).
  2. Engagement Metrics: Evaluate how users interact with the site (e.g., pages per visit, visit duration, bounce rate).
  3. Performance Metrics: Assess the technical performance and loading speed of the site (e.g., web_lcp, web_fcp, web_ttfb).
  4. Conversion/Funnel Metrics: Track the effectiveness of the website in achieving desired actions (e.g., form submissions, purchases, sign-ups).
  5. Behavioral Metrics: Provide insights into user behavior and navigation patterns (e.g., scroll depth, interaction metrics).
  6. Value Metrics: Provides insights into what types of users drive the most value to your site
